# SOİL MECHANİCS…For the RC retaining wall given in the figure below

a) Calculate the required extent of the base slab forward the back of the wall such that a factor of safety of 2.0 against overturning is met.

b) Subsequently check if the required minimum factor of safety of 1.5 is met against base sliding. If not, design a base key. Calculate the passive pressure starting from the bottom level of the base slab. Also use 2/3 of the shear strength parameters of the base soil in calculations and apply a FS 2.0 for the passive resistance.
